Emily / child caregiver

Hello I am a 24 years old child caregiver, and a wife and soon to be mother (due June 2). I have been nannying since I was 18 years old. I have loved and have been working with kids since I was 12-13. Since I was an early teenager, I have been involved in the nursery, Sunday School, and babysitting. Kids are my passion! I love teaching them and watching them grow! I love to be outside and go for walks, play at the park, go to the zoo etc. I love arts and crafts and getting kids to use their amazing imaginations! Like I said, I am currently pregnant. I wish to resume work after my maternity leave. I will need to bring my baby with me. I have a lot of experience with multiple children. I watched 3 kids grow up from infancy with my last family of 7 years. I have experience with infant twins as well. I am confidant that I can watch your children, while bringing along my own. Your children will be no less a priority than my own. I am looking for a family that I can grow with over the years!

Emily has been our family's nanny for the past 6.5 years. She began with us when my oldest was only 8 weeks old. When we added to our family 2 years later, she handled our (then) 25 month old and newborn twins like a pro. Emily provides structure and discipline for our kids, mixed in with a lot of laughter, cuddles, and love. She goes above and beyond for our family helping out with grocery shopping and laundry. She has been a lifesaver keeping my children's wardrobes up to date (not only in clothes that fit them because they seem to grow out of clothing every week, but also she is very in tune with what is stylish, so my kids always look great in what she puts the in). Emily also is great at meal prepping and some of our favorites meals were introduced to us by her. She has truly become a part of our family and we will miss her immensely. She will be an asset to any family and I recommend her highly without reservation.

Fun-loving And Caring Nanny

I have been working in childcare for my whole life starting at a very young age. I have experience working with children from infants to teens and am very comfortable caring for many children at one time. I have experience with preparing meals, carrying out daily routines, transportation to and from school and activities, providing academic support, infant care, cleanups and bathing, pet care, and working long hours including overnights and multiple day spans. I am currently in nursing school at GVSU so my mornings and afternoons are pretty busy during the week, and my hours are a little funny-- my availability listed here is accurate. This fall I would probably be the best fit for a family that needs help during evenings and weekends either regularly or for date nights/events. I am open to one-time jobs/as-needed work.

We hired Anna this year to help out with my baby and she was absolutely wonderful! She was dependable and always on time. My baby girl absolutely loved her and would get so excited when Anna arrived each day. Anna kept her engaged in play and reading books. Anna did a great job feeding her and was so quick to recognize signs she was tired to put her down for a nap and she would go right to sleep. I would hire Anna again in a heartbeat! Anna moved to go back to school which is why she is no longer with us and we miss her! Couldn't have had a better first nanny for my little one!
